Cold morning by Smilika Cold morning by Smilika
"Сold morning" or "The most wonderful thing on the surface"

so..this is it...is it the surface?
For any dwarf it is a very emotive and exciting moment and to do the first step to new life it can be really very difficult...even for brave dwarfs)) ;)

========================

it's my part of art-trade with adorable and very talented :iconkat-maniac5:
here is what she has done for me:
*awwww*
i am little nervous with this picture because i am still not quite sure in colors. i'm sorry for any mistakes, guys. i still hope that you will like it anyway =D.

Duncan belongs to Dragon age, bioware (c)
lady Ilda Aeducan belongs to ~Kat-Maniac5

This is beautiful.

I'm sure any dwarf would be scared shitless with even the thought of going to the surface. It would def be a culture shock to them if they actually went.

Просто потрясающий рисунок!
С одной стороны зима, сосульки))) а другой изза солнышка теплые тона разбавляют всё^^
Мне очень понравилось, очень качественно!

Stunning!! The surface looks exciting and beautiful and frightening and foreign all at once, which is probably how any dwarf would feel when leaving for the first time. I love this! You really have a gift for color and light!

what do you mean, you're not sure with colors? this piece is neatly colored and stunning!
the concept is also wonderful-- i always wondered why my dwarven PCs were not given more opportunities to emote how different the surface was. instant favorite. :)

You captured this moment beautifully! I can imagine the look on her face. As she steps out into the open air for the first time and sees the world before her. I don't know how you thought to do it, but I think having the perspective of the piece placed behind the characters, looking outward, is genius. It helps to illustrate how important this is for the dwarven lady.

ohhh it was very hard to make a choice)) i was afraid that if i will be draw only...back view it will be seems not too much detailed and it's simple strange when you see drawing without any face =D lol)) but from another point of view the full drawing looks more impressive and i don't know why but we still can feel the same emotions, exactly if we could see her face))i guess, this drawing it is a case when we see faces without faces =D 0_о...i hope you understand the idea =D ahaha)

NoobianRose Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2010
I understand perfectly! And I agree completely. I think the back-view is actually more powerful and better illustrates the moment since we see what she's seeing.

Why don't we do an art-trade? If you have a little of time (that is not the case for me for now xD) so I can draw one of your original character, then after you can do the same :D if you were agree, of course

Как здорово получилось...Картину прямо таки ощущаешь всеми органами чуств. Видишь раскинувшуюся перед героями долину (могу ошибаться), чувствуешь пронизывающий горный ветер и едва заметное тепло от утреннего солнца.
Хорошая находка поставить героев спинами к нам. Мне кажется, работа произвела бы гораздо меньшее впечатление, если бы были видны их лица. Не было бы такой вживленности)))

:iconsmilika:
Smilika Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
я тоже думала, что с лицами будет не так живо чувство передано...но я и одновременно волновалась -ведь рисовать спины только , это всё равно что прохалявить =D но потом в итоге решила всё сделать так как есть..)))
Reply
:iconaredeli:
Aredeli Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2010
И правильно сделала:) И кто сказал, что рисовать со спины - халява? Мне кажется, что наоборот. Эмоции персонажа от увиденного гораздо труднее передать.
